New York Knicks big man Amar'e Stoudemire isn't the athlete he used to be, but that didn't stop him from doing a decent impersonation of his old self against the Washington Wizards on Friday night. Center Marcin Gortat just happened to get in the way.

Gortat couldn't prevent the inevitable, though. Stoudemire rolled hard to the basket after setting the screen for Carmelo Anthony, and that was all she wrote.
